Etsy Twitter Shop of the Week!!

The very lovely people of the Etsy Twitter Team have done me the honor of making me the Etsy Twitter "Shop of the Week" this week!!  They did up such a lovely feature article--please stop by and check it out--everything you've always wanted to know about Mrs. Kwitty but were afraid to ask, LOL!   Not really, but it is a very nice article and it also tells you about a little "SPECIAL" for the reader's at the end!

I've added some new stuff to my shop this week, including a couple more new birdies--it is supposed to be spring you know!  There is this pretty pink one (I know, there are no pretty white and pink birds in the wild, but don't you think there should be...look how cute they are!) lol
And then a cutey blue bird too!

I've also made up a couple new Page Percher bookmarks in their pretty library pockets.

There are a few more things, but I don't want to load you all up with pics!  Stop by the shop and see for yourself.

I'm so glad that this feature article came out this week...otherwise it would have been a bit of a rough one for was Pauly's birthday yesterday, he would have turned 44.  I sure do miss him and we really felt the loss of his presence yesterday :o(

Also, it is chemo week....they are a bit rough (to put it mildly!)  I go in for chemo 3 days in a row and then on the 4th day I go in for a shot to boost my white cell production as the chemo makes you anemic.  I just finished my 3rd treatment this morning.  Just in for the shot tomorrow and then I have 2 weeks to recover before I go again.  Keep me in your prayers that all this keeps on working and for strength, it makes me feel so tired and weak.

That's it for today, my dear friends!!  Have a great day ♥♥♥

Happy Birthday Baby

I'd like to wish a very Happy 17th Birthday to my baby girl!! 

We're so proud of what a great kid she is...she is so very sweet to others, a kind and compassionate person, helpful and honest. 

She is very dedicated to her dance team, never misses practices (even though they take up so much of her time), keeps her nose clean, and still maintains a very high grade point average!  Yah Linds...we love you!!  Happy Birthday Sweetheart!

Etsy Front Page

Hello all you beautiful people :o)

I was very pleased to find out that my cute vintage Sailor dish towel made it to Etsy's front page last night!!

It did actually sell right away and brought me lots of new visitors and a few new shop heart---so YEAH!!

I know that I've been gone for such a long time from my blog--it's been a pretty rough road for ol' Mrs. Kwitty lately. Losing Paul was so hard on us all, he left a really big hole with his passing--hard on us and especially hard on his wife and kids.

Then, I had been feeling very ill for several months during the ordeal with Paul, and was being treated for pneumonia on top of it all. At the end of December I ended up in the hospital and it was discovered there that it wasn't pneumonia that was wearing me down...I was diagnosed with lung cancer.

Since then has been all the fun and games that goes along with having cancer....getting your mind wrapped around the fact that you have cancer, starting and getting through chemo treatments, losing your hair (oh yeah, being a baldy is really something! lol), and so on and so forth. I ended up closing up my Etsy shop for a while, but you know, crafting is in the heart and soul and I just had to get back into it again FOR MY SANITY! lol

So, little by little, I've been adding things back into life again and I guess it's time to get back to my little blog here and all the lovely friends that stop by to visit. I do love you guys, you brighten my day with your comments and encouragement and I thank you!! Keep me in your prayers...I can use the help from the "Big Guy" upstairs!
